Drinkers may want to think twice before choosing their alcoholic beverage as each type can affect their mood differently according to research. Want to feel sexy? Then gin is the right way to go! The researchers from Public Health Wales and King's College London found that gin and other spirit types are often associated with feeling sexier, with 4 in 10 of people saying drinking spirits made them feel this way.
